Quest for Imortality

by Vanessa   Mar 28, 2008

Ink injected ivory skin,
Dripping wet with sex and sin.
Eyes reflect desire for immorality,
Tiny scars hold truth and reality.
Scarlet painted pouting lips,
Cigarette dangling from her fingertips,
Shiny, long, braided hair,
Heart burdened by deep despair.
Shot of whiskey, bowl of hash,
Pretty little girl, born poor white trash,
Her terror she could not hide,
Brushing death in an attempt at suicide.
Angry soul paired with a brilliant mind,
Haunted by memories she'd never leave behind,
Held in the cold embrace of yesterday,
Mascara colored tears washed away.
Sullen, moody. and filled with rage,
No longer innocent, corrupted with age,
Wandering lonely like a spirit in the mist,
Drops of crimson falling from her wrist.
White silk gown dragging though the snow,
Harboring more pain than even I could know.

    Oh my bloody God, you are on a roll. I know I said I rarely give out 5/5s, but these two pieces are amazing, and I'm a 'truth teller', believe me, people could tell you, lol. This is great! Just as good as the other one, if not better, if that's even possible. Lines I loved;

    'Dripping wet with sex and sin'

    'Pretty little girl, born poor white trash'

    'No longer innocent, corrupted with age'

    'Harboring more pain than even I could know'

    The whole piece was brilliantly written, but these lines were my favorite (there were some more, but I didn't want to quote half the poem, lol). From the very first line the piece was powerful and engaging. The last line was just as strong, in fact, it was stronger that the first line, probably the strongest line in the whole piece, which is how it should be. The addition of the word 'even', in that last line was genius, and was what made the line so powerful, as if to say 'I've seen and done it all, and even I couldn't relate to her'. Once again, a truely magnificent piece.
